Don’t take our word for it! Hear from our valued clients and see why they chose The Swan Barn Door for their dreamy wedding day or special event!

“Organic, creative, family, proud work, detailed, humbling, heartwarming….love-filled! These are just a few initial words that come to mind as we reflect on the Swan Barn Door venue, and the great experience Kari and Paul provided for our 2019 wedding. Let me confirm this place has it absolutely right for appreciative deserving couples. Amongst so much uncertainty and pandemic troubles the wedding industry must have been dealing with, I want to give a shout out, supportive review, highest praise, and best of wishes to Kari and Paul’s venue, these two are friendly and hard working. I felt special solidarity with the rusticness and naturalness of what they’ve built with their own hands and sweat equity. Give them the benefit of any doubt as family business owners/operators. This place made the hair on my arms stand up and when I walked into the reception area, and the band started to play, after just exchanging my vows, that’s no joke. Everyone has dreams of a memorable big day, you can make it happen here! Our guests commented then, and a year later, about the incredible outdoor ceremony space, the deck, the walkable area around the barn, and the upstairs overlook. Gemma and I would HIGHLY recommend the Swan Barn Door to everyone! From Kari’s local contractor connections and growing experience to their family’s prized location and their beautiful venue – this place fit us perfectly. Great job and thank you!”

“We couldn’t have been more pleased with our wedding at the Swan Barn Door!! Kari and Paul answered all my questions and were so helpful throughout the process. The outside area for a ceremony is so lovely and the inside of the barn can be decorated as rustic or as elegant as you’d like!! Kari offers many vendors to help make your day your dream come true or you can do it yourself either way it will be gorgeous because of the romantic feel of the barn! We were able to book the day before the wedding to decorate, rehearse and hold our rehearsal dinner outside on the deck. It was all so perfect! I love that the barn has AC and beautiful bathrooms!”

“The Swan Barn Door was such a joy to work with. They were so accommodating throughout the entire process. They allowed us to visit as many times as we wanted as the barn was being built and were always responsive to email questions in a timely manner. Paul & Kari are truly such great people and I’d recommend them & the barn over and over again. We received so many comments on the craftsmanship & detail within the barn. It was the perfect place to have our wedding & I will cherish it forever!”

“I could not be happier with my expericence with the Swan Barn Door for my Nov. 4th, 2017 wedding. From the very start, they were so accomidating and responisve. Kari helped me with everything from who they recommned for vendors and working with our band, to being open to customizing our bar menu. She also gave us more then enough time for set up and take down, which was a huge stress reliver.”

“The Swan Barn door is a magical place to get married! It is something different then the typical resort in Wisconsin Dells! We were fortunate to be the first ones to get married there, it was very special to us! The owners were very accommodating in letting us do things our own way and helping our day be as perfect as possible! With any new business there are some bumps in the road but over time through experiences and learning the Swan Barn Door will become an even more magical and beautiful place to have your wedding! It is truly beautiful how they have used their wonderful craftsmanship skills to make and build the barn! Kari and Paul were great to work with! I would definitely recommend this location for people looking to have a unique wedding! We had the best day of our lives and it will be something we will never forget!”

“The barn is so beautiful and was the perfect location for my husband and I’s June wedding! Kari was professional and always responded to my emails and calls promptly! They were also so flexible with letting us choose to have the ceremony inside or outside up until the morning of which was very important for our outdoor Wisconsin wedding (where the weather can be unpredictable)! There are so many locations outside for photos also! It was the perfect location and day!”

“Sam and I, along with our families, first visited Swan Barn Door in January of 2017. After the initial shock of how remarkable this venue is, we spent some time talking with Kari and Paul who turned out to be two of the most passionate people we’ve ever met. These are two individuals who are truly in the wedding business to make dreams come true. They were so patient with us along the way as we, of course, had to check in every few weeks to see the status of the barn. Kari responded to every message we sent in the most timely manner and was willing to work with us on everything we asked. Paul’s work on the barn is incredible and they are both clearly so proud of what they are building.”
